I've

\begin{itemize} \renewcommand{\labelitemi}{$\bullet$}       
\item item1 ...
\item item2 ....
\end{itemize}

You can use a \vspace{length} or \par or \\[length]. Hope this helps. – azetina Feb 17 '12 at 17:13

Just put \bigskip after the empty line following \end{itemize} – egreg Feb 17 '12 at 17:17

\documentclass{article}
\let\EndItemize\enditemize
\def\enditemize{\EndItemize\bigskip}
\begin{document}

\begin{itemize} \renewcommand{\labelitemi}{$\bullet$}       
\item item1 ...
\item item2 ....
\end{itemize}                                               

New paragraph etc......

This would then cause a systematic space after each itemization in the document, right? I don't know if that is what Matthieu is asking... – azetina Feb 17 '12 at 17:17

If you want just a one shot spacing, use \bigskip or \medskip; for getting symmetric spacing, enumitem makes the thing easier.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{lipsum} % for mock text

\begin{document}

\lipsum*[2]
\begin{itemize}
\item item1 ...
\item item2 ....
\end{itemize}                                               

\bigskip
\lipsum*[3]
\begin{itemize}[topsep=\bigskipamount]
\item item1 ...
\item item2 ....
\end{itemize}                                               

\lipsum*[4]

\end{document}
